2020 Trees Atlanta Canopy Conference

Climate change challenges are amplified in urban areas due to the dynamics of higher populations, density, and development. Cities can and are using a very local resource -- trees -- to fight climate change.

Panelists from partner organizations will address climate change impacts in Atlanta, effect of urban forests as natural infrastructure, and local projects using trees a priority components.
